Shoofly...Don't bother me! :)

Anytime I ask my husband what he wants for dessert it is always chocolate chip cookies or Shoofly pie. 
 Here is our favorite recipe.
 Tom's GrandMom gave this to me years ago. I have finally put in on my computer so I never lose it! 
I also have saved the handwritten piece of paper she wrote this down for me on.
 It's special.
 She is no longer with us.
It's special. :)
It's a little different than your typical Pennsylvania dutch pie you get back east. It is stronger on the molasses flavor and I mix a little more of the dry ingredients into the wet because we don't like all the goo on the bottom. 
Hope you enjoy!
